Our twins were born more than three months early, our daughter weighing 15 ounces, her brother 22 ounces.

Our tiny girl Jaina died after two days of kidney disease and infection. Cade spent four bumpy months in the NICU before coming home. He's survived at least 10 surgeries, but now he's a happy, healthy, silly and strong 3-year-old.

We walk for the March of Dimes to honor those whose fundraising and research saved our son, and we walk with hope that we'll help fund a cure for what took our daughter.

We hope others will benefit from our experience and fundraising and not have to go through what we have.

Please support my walk, join our team or create a team of your own:

The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.

Your gift will support March of Dimes research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. And it will be used to bring comfort and information to families with a baby in newborn intensive care.
